    ABC counters Emmys with 'POTC: TCoTBP' - Hollywood Reporter 7/25/06

    Emmys will walk plank in ABC kudo-night plan

    By Ray Richmond
    The Hollywood Reporter

    It's starting to get downright nasty in Emmyland. ABC announced during the weekend that it's going to counterprogram NBC's telecast of the Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony on Aug. 27 by showing "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl," which certainly seems to be a petulant reaction from ABC to the network's Emmy snubs this year.

    Talk about cutting off a nose to spite one's face. ABC and USA Network paid in excess of $20 million combined for "Pirates" telecast rights, and ABC decides to blow it off in late August against the industry's preeminent awards show. And for what? Revenge? Yeah, that sounds like a wise business decision. (An ABC spokeswoman described the move as "competitive scheduling.") I'm sure the folks at the one ABC show that did rake in nominations, "Grey's Anatomy," weren't happy to hear that should they go all the way to the top drama series prize, they'd better hope the Emmy show runs past 11 p.m. (which is, in fact, a pretty safe bet) to get out of the way of Jack Sparrow and crew.

    I don't need to watch POTC on ABC. I have the DVD and can watch it whenever I want, uncut, uninterrupted (unless I want to interrupt it).
